Granted, it never reaches those temps irl, but I'll wait to get an aftermarket cooler to switch to 6 cores so I can still get a decent clock rate.


For Phenom II the safe max temp was 62°C after that it starts throttling or shuts down to prevent damage. Probally want to keep it below 55° just to have some safety margin for summer. Intel chips can get hotter before they start to throttle etc. Now you get the joy of pulling apart your newly built computer just to fit a CPU cooler backplate tongue_smile.gif.

On idle, Motherboard 22, CPU 21, GPU 50, HDD 30. GPU is running at 33%.
Gonna note I have 2xCorsair, 2xFractal and 2xNoctua fans in the case. Still very quiet.


Thanks. Yeah my mobo is around the 25 mark but the northbridge reckons its doing ~82 so it seems to be a stuck sensor then as it doesnt vary apart from plus or minus 1 under heavy or light loads.

Does your motherboard have a boot from USB option? Try turning that off and see if the boot time goes back to normal.

I was using SpeedFan and I got that problem. One of the censors only read 80C. I turned it off for a couple hours and back on, and auto-80C, so I figured it was a sensor problem, and used another program.
